JanuARTY Drawing Practice Continued: Lotus Flowers...

A couple of sketches of a lotus flower. The top one was my first attempt at copying a photo, and the second was my attempt at making a more visually pleasing one.

I may colour these at some point, but the focus is on drawing, drawing, drawing for now :)

JanuARTY Drawing Practice: Lana Del Rey...

I'm hoping to improve my pencil & paper skills so me and Richard Page are taking part in #JanuARTY, where we draw something everyday. Super simple, but lets hope I can keep up :D

This is my first drawing in ages, and it's based on Lana Del Rey and her lovely face. I'm pretty happy with it, so I'll have the next practice up soon! :)

Portrait Painting Practice: Lana Del Rey...

Based on the picture below.

I think it's turned out pretty successfully. It's not finished yet, because I keep spotting elements that need tweaking or changing, but just as a practice I thought I'd post it up and continue to post any updates on it too. For my first attempt at a digital portrait painting, I'm pretty chuffed with it.

Here's the progress gif!

Quick Refresher Illustration...

Using the same technique as the space rodent, I drew a load of random lines then picked something out from them. I ended up with this alien/magic lady and bird lecturn/stage. I haven't spent more than an hour on her and I don't know if I'll take her any futher, but I think she looks pretty cool :D

Needle Felt Things & What's Next Illustration!

A teeny hamster.

 Vastly improved by his bottle cap helmet.

Molang fan-art with removable felted top hat.

Totoro fan-art with extra squishy-ness.

Here's a sneaky peak at what's coming next:

Meet William the Norman vs Elric the Anglo-Saxon! Who said history can't be adorable? :P

I haven't worked out how, but I will be making these in one form or another!

Giant Rodents from Space!..

Giant space rodent!

This was pretty fun; I drew a load of random lines on a page and picked this guy out of them. Something to try again I think :D

Lolly, A Christmas Present...

I've got lots of bits and bobs to upload soon, but in the meantime I thought I'd share my Christmas Present to Mum & Dad; a digital painting of our little Lolly that we lost in October. She was a sweetie that will be sorely missed <3
